[ROVERNET - UK] Sources for P6 Front Shocks?

I have found that new Armstrongs with the "standard" valving feel
unreasonably stiff, and must give the shock absorber mountings a real
hammering. I suspect that this is why a welded-on re-inforcement kit
is available in Melbourne (OZ) to strengthen the sub-frame around the
front shocks.
The Koni's are more than twice the price of Armstrongs, but give a
much better ride and handling.
